Video-DVD discs are written in a special way, which is very different from data discs.

To make a Video-DVD you need to create and burn the DVD with 'MyDVD'. This program converts your video into the proper sort for a DVD, creates the Video_TS folder and its contents, and formats the disc to the proper specs for a Video-DVD.

A Video-DVD made this way should play in almost every DVD player.

Thanks Brendon. Can you tell me what you mean by "MyDVD"?  I'm having the same problem - spent 100+ hours on a movie and when I burn it to a DVD, I can't play it in any DVD player or on my computer. I'm using Creator 2010 and chose "Create DVD" in the menu.

myDVD is the program from C2010 that runs when you chose "Create DVD".

You will have to explain a bit more what you did to create the DVD. "I can't play it in any DVD player or on my computer" does not tell us very much.

Thanks Walt. OK, I went to Roxio Creator 2010/Video Movies/Create DVDs. The movie I want to burn is loaded in the Project View.  I select "file/burn project to disc".  The Disc Drive is "TSSTcorp DVD+-RW TS-L632H D400"The capacity of the disc is 4706.1 mb.  The project size is 2602.5 Mb.  The speed is 4.0 X.  It burns but then won't play on my computer or either of my 2 DVD players.

Do you need to know anything else to help me?  Thanks,

From the Home Screen, what does it say about the disc? What type of DVD Disc are you using DVD-R, DVD +R, or DVD-+RW?

With a BLANK disc inserted, it says:
DVD-R, Blank Media
0
4489.2 MB
0.0 MB

I inserted a DVD that I had burned.  The Info from the "Inserted Disc" reads the same (blank media, number of tracks = 0, etc.)  However, the "Disc, Sessions and Tracks" shows a different icon of a "DVD-R, Blank Media".

It appears that nothing burned.

By the way, I was able to transfer the finished movie to my iPad.

Thanks for all of your help guys.

Used space is 0.  When I put it in a DVD player, it says "cannot read disk".  When I put it in my computer, nothing appears on the DVD.  It is blank.

Re-do a project, on the burn screen uncheck the burner and check image file..

Then use Video Copy and Convert to burn the image file to a DVD...

Yes.  Do I hear a warning that this may cause problems? (burning and doing things on the computer at the same time?)
Recording to the computer (disk image file) was quick. Now I'm burning to the DVD.  45 minutes in and I'm at 25%.
It looks like it's going to work this time.  I appreciate everyone's help with this.

Yes leave the pc alone!

The image file shouldn't of been that quick.

Your encoding and burning at the same time if it's that slow..

Burning a single layer DVD from a image file at 8x should take about eight minutes!

OK, so I'm obviously not leaving the PC alone (as I'm typing this reply to you).  I went to Video Copy & Convert and chose "Convert Video" at the top.  I clicked on "movies" and found the file. It's 35 min long. I chose Output as "DVD" and slid the slider to "highest quality".  I also chose "save file to "Disk/Disk Image".  I'm now at 31% (35 minutes after my last post I have gained 6%).  Should I stop this burning and do something different?

I don't have a clue what you loaded into Video Copy and Convert (VC&C) Convert Video? If it's taking that long it's a compressed avi or mpeg file?

I thought we were making a image file in MyDVD? Then load that into VC&C, Copy DVD, navigate to the saved image file and burn that to a DVD Disc?

Thanks cd.  I had to stop working on this (Mother's day, you know).  I was using My DVD, but saw in your previous post about "converting" so I chose the "Convert Video" by mistake.

OK, I have created an image file and then tried to copy from the image file to the DVD. You're right - it only take a few minutes.  You can tell the DVD has info on it (you can see the difference on the DVD). I tried to play the DVD on my 2 DVD players but it won't work.  It tries to read it and the DVD player even counts trough the chapters (6 of them) but it won't play.  I put the DVD in 3 different computers.  On my laptop, it shows the name of the file but I can't get Roxio, Power DVD RX or Microsoft Media Player to play it.  Media Player will open it & I can choose the first menu button (to start the program), but when I select the first chapter, it freezes up.  My other two computers won't even open the DVD.

I'm using a DVD-R (16x) by HP.

What else can I tell you to help me with this issue?  I really appreciate all of the help - especially the pictures with arrows.  You're a great help!

What else can I tell you to help me with this issue?  I really appreciate all of the help - especially the pictures with arrows.  You're a great help!



I hope you have finally stopped using the computer while doing the burn rolleyes.gif  Also shut down any running apps, disconnect from the internet, ie stopped anything that can interupt a burn. .

What does the DVD show when you look at it using Windows Explorer. You should have a Video_TS folder and inside that folder there should be a number of files with the extension ifo,bup and vob. If you don't have that then you don't have a video DVD. unsure.gif

I don't understand what you mean by "the DVD player even counts trough the chapters (6 of them) but it won't play"?

I have. Thanks for the tips on internet and any running apps. I hadn't done that yet.

There is a Video_TS folder.  Inside it are 11 files. 3 have "ifo" and 3 have "bup".  I don't see any with "vob" extensions. There are 5 other files (VTS_01_1, VTS_01_2, VTS_01_3, VTS_02_1, VTS_02_2).

This was new to me too.  The DVD player display (where it says the time or what track your on when a movie is playing), counted through "1", "2", etc. as it was trying to read the DVD. It went to 6, which is the # of chapters I have in this movie. I assumed there was a correlation - trying to read the DVD.

When you look at the DVD, click tools (up top) Folder Options, View Tab, is Hide Extensions for Know File Types checked?

If so uncheck it click apply and ok, now do Vob extensions show? What does Get Disc Information show from the Home Page, Tools, Get Disc Information?
